Wisa Greid, Freda Rhymes and Dahlin Gage wants quick fame – Dblack.
There seem to be a wave of movement from the camp of Black Avenue Music this year as at-least three artiste from the label Quit.
Dblack, the CEO of Black Avenue Muzik, said In an interview that the artists, Wisa Greid, Freda Rhymes, Dahlin Gage and others who left the record label in the past few days are after quick fame.
Acknowledging the speculations that he’s not managing the artistes properly, he said the signees were impatient, and wanted to be known quickly.
“They did not have the patience to wait to become stars, they wanted to be known quickly but my label and I wanted them to grow organically because that is what I believed and still believe in.
“What people don’t know is that the best thing in this industry is to go at a pace where you can never be forgotten in years to come.
“When you grow organically, you last long in the game and you learn all that there is to learn and it gives you the strength to stand the test of time when the dry season comes.
When asked if the numbers of artistes had a negative effect on the signee leaving, he said;
“Yes, maybe if the number was less things would have been different and the story wouldn’t be this but then I believe it is all good.
“I did not and do not mange artistes, anyone on the label came with his or her manager.
“All that I did is to invest and come in with the financing and we made sure that at least within a year, each artiste had some songs out.”
D-Black also said he did not believe the exit of the artistes meant he had failed.
“I have not failed, neither has the label. Rather, a lot of lessons have been learnt, they did their best and we also did our part and that is it. There is no bitterness whatsoever,” he stated.
“Signing them has made our brand known so that today, if you are mentioning record labels in Ghana, you would mention Black Avenue Muzik.”
“You do not need a record label to succeed, you can be great on your own. The sky is big enough for everyone. Just believe and trust in God, work hard, be patient and trust the process,” he said.
